Have you ever wondered what really goes on at Sea Scout group activities, expeditions and annual camps?

Those questions have been answered thanks to a new book put together by three leaders of the 1st Bungay Sea Scouts.

Peter Jermy, Graham Pritchard and Gary Fenn joined the group as boys and graduated through the ranks together.

They have a combined experience of nearly 150 years of activities with the group, which was formed at the former Bungay Secondary Modern School in 1947 and is based at the boathouse at The Staithe.

Now they have written down many of their memories, anecdotes, crises and dramas in the book No Throwing Apples, which will be launched at Bungay Library on December 9.

Mr Pritchard said: “Through 46 years of being scout leaders we wanted scouts to have fun, like we had growing up in the fifties and sixties – times that were carefree and worry-free.

“We love Bungay and the Waveney Valley, and we thought of the shows and the stories we’ve generated along the way.

“The tales we’ve told in this book are to make people smile. Everything is light-hearted and humorous.”
